If painting is a language, drawing is the key that allows artists to speak and express themselves successfully. 

This course is designed to equip students with a strong foundation in drawing and, later on, with painting. It is divided into three modules, each with specific assignments.

At the end of each module an examination will take place in order to determine whether or not the student is ready to progress to the next module.

All our lessons are from either live objects or subjects; drawing or painting from photographs is strictly forbidden. Dedication and commitment are essential prerequisites for all students.

The lessons can be given in English, Spanish or French.
